The Gifted Season 3: Premiere Date, Cast, Trailer, Spoilers & News

The Gifted is an American television series created for Fox by Matt Nix, based on Marvel Comics’ X-Men properties. It is connected to the X-Men film series, set in an alternate timeline where the X-Men have disappeared. The show is produced by 20th Century Fox Television in association with Marvel Television, with Nix serving as showrunner. The Gifteds first season aired from October 2, 2017, to January 15, 2018, over 13 episodes. It received mostly positive reviews from critics and “solid” viewership.

The X world is filled with Mutants and us normal humans don’t really understand how to handle the situation. Some act in fear and some with rage. The Gifted delivers a great aspect of the issues between mutants and normal humans.

The Gifted Season 2 Cast: Who’s in it?

The series stars Stephen Moyer and Amy Acker as ordinary parents who take their family on the run after they discover their children’s mutant abilities. Sean Teale, Natalie Alyn Lind, Percy Hynes White, Coby Bell, Jamie Chung, Blair Redford, and Emma Dumont also star in the show.

As with the first season, the Strucker family were central to the second season so that meant returns for Stephen Moyer and Amy Acker as Reed and Caitlin Strucker, along with Natalie Alyn Lind and Percy Hynes White as their children Lauren and Andy.

Given they all survived the season one finale, Sean Teale, Jamie Chung, Emma Dumont and Blair Redford were all back as Mutant Underground members Eclipse, Blink, Polaris and Thunderbird, respectively, as also was Coby Bell as Sentinel Services agent Jace Turner who is trying to hunt down the Struckers and the mutants. Skyler Samuels as Esme Frost and her sisters Phoebe and Sophie, otherwise known as the Stepford Cuckoos were also seen in season 2. A majority of the same cast will be expected to reprise their roles in season 3 as well.

The Gifted Season 2 Plot: What is it about?

The series follows an ordinary couple who are forced to go on the run from the government when they discover their two children have mutant powers, with the family seeking help from an underground network of mutants.

Everything was shaken up by the finale of the first season which saw Polaris take a leaf from her father Magneto’s book by causing the plane that Dr Campbell and anti-mutant Senator Montez were on to crash, literally ripping the engines off as it passed overhead. As she was doing this, the Strucker children combined their power to stop Sentinel Services and the Hounds, destroying the Mutant Underground’s Atlanta base in doing so.

The third season begins after there is an attack on the hideout by the government. The finale of season 2 shows a flashback from a year ago where Rebecca’s sent to the Sentinel Services by her parents. Andy attempts to free Rebecca in the present day and make a run for it and ends up killing Reeva who wishes to kill off the entire Inner Circle. An analyst from Regimen is kidnapped by Johnny, Marcos and Clarice. The shoe goes on to follow the original mutant underground and the Hellfire Club.

The Gifted Season 3 Release Date: When will it premiere?

The Gifted season 2 premiered on September 25, 2018. It was moved from Monday nights to Tuesday nights on the Fox schedule, filling the 8 p.m. ET. Gifted season 2 concluded on December 4, 2018, and we are yet to hear about a possible season 3. Given the way the second season ended, we can expect an air date for season 3 to be announced soon. Stay tuned to find out.

  • Hi, I’m sorry, but your article has several mistakes. I’m not sure if you knew, but season 2 of the Gifted did not “conclude” on Dec. 4, 2018. That was the midseason finale not the season finale. New episodes of season 2 return on January 1, 2019.
